BAEMOUTH. THE WEATHER AND THE CIIOPS.-The weather for the last few days has been clear and fine which has given the farmers in this neighbourhood a good oppor- tunity of getting in their root crops. The potato crop this year is a good one, and the disease has only made its appearance in a few instances. The crops of mangold wurtzel and swedes of Mr J. It. Davies, of the Hotel, are the best we have seen this year. MrDaviesisan industrious practical farmer, his farms are clean and neat, and the crops he produces are well worth looking at; his first object is to well cleanse the land. It would be well if others would follow his example. HOUSE BUILDLNG.—The building of houses has been going on in this town for some time, but whether to the improvement of the place or not, is a question,—brick houses are being built up like the chimneys of a factory, with loop holes cut in them but we shall not be sur- prised if by some soft sweet gale, of the approaching win- ter, they be brought to grief as Babylon of Old. I hese new brick stacks, and other houses in the town, are built without any sanitary convenience whatever; with- out an inch of back yard, and in most instances without a back door, whether these houses will be occupied in the course of a few years is doubtful; surely Barmouth will keep pace with the times, and we shall have modern houses, at fair rents, with back yards, open fronts, and perhaps neat gardens before them; at present landlords are asking exorbitant rents for these miserable holes— houses which are now let for fifteen and sixteen pounds per annum are without a closet of any description, or back door all is carried through the front doors to the beach. Will these things always be ? Alas, we think if things go on as they do now, Barmouth will soon be a deserted village, for scarcely a day passes but we hear of families leaving for other towns, where they say they can live cheap, and clean, with house rent fifty per cent lower than at Barmouth.
